I’ve been wanting to try art journaling for a while. I wanted to start because I have read that it helps you process through your feelings and thoughts in a creative way. And I love being creative.
So today I took the plunge and created my first entry in my art journal. It was really refreshing. I had been really angry all day, and I said some things to Josia that I regretted. I wrote those things down, then covered them with paint. I burned pieces of paper, which was a good anger release. (Though if you do that, I recommend doing it over a sink so that you don’t burn down your house! That way, you have water right there if you need it.) The whole process helped me work through why I was angry in the first place.
I really enjoyed doing this today. I will definitely be continuing this new creative outlet.
